A new way to support TPS

As a local community group run entirely by volunteers, we’re always on the hunt for new fundraising ideas.

Earlier this week, the TPS Committee agreed to support the Tandridge Together Lottery, in the hope that some of our members will take part and help us raise much-needed funds for the club.

Here’s how you can help:

  1. Visit our TPS Tandridge Lottery page and buy some tickets
  2. Er, that’s it!

TPS will receive 50% of your ticket value, and you could win a top prize of £25,000!*

Tickets cost £1 and give you a 1 in 50 chance of winning a prize. The word on the street is that we’ve already had a TPS winner (who is cloaked under the veil of anonymity, probably because they don’t want to have to spend their new fortune buying the post-TPS drinks on Thursday!)

So, go on, have a flutter! You’ll be helping TPS and other local good causes, and you might even win the jackpot 🙂


* Good news: you get to keep any prize money, tax-free. Mike, our Treasurer, would love you to donate it to TPS, but you really don’t have to. Good luck!

Set Subject Competition Results

Our annual ‘Set Subjects’ competition, where members are invited to submit photos that match given topics, is always a highlight. This year our set subjects were “Curves” and “Be Creative”, both of which provided ample opportunity for some clever photographic expression. And our wonderful TPS members did not disappoint, with lots of fabulous images on display. In fact, we had so many submissions to the competition we had to limit entries to just two images per set subject for each member.

Our guest judge, David Eastley LRPS, had a tricky task picking out his winners but, after much deliberation, David chose Simon Bedwell’s wonderful “Dune” image as the best ‘Curves’ entry and “Creative Thinking” by Clare Pickett LRPS as the best ‘Be Creative’ image. Well done to you both, your prize cheque is in the post*!

Here are some of the judge’s favourite images from each set subject category. Congratulations once again if your image appears below:

* Not really, but Simon and Clare do win a rather smashing trophy, to be presented at our TPS Dinner!
